Tesla Inc. plans to suspend production at its Shanghai plant for at least one day as the local government intensifies Covid restrictions after a surge in cases in the city, people familiar with the matter said. 

Production will be halted Monday, the people said, asking not to be identified because they’re not authorized to speak publicly. Tesla hasn’t yet informed employees whether it will extend the suspension beyond Monday, they said. Tesla didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.
